THE STORY:

I have been working at the University of Rhode Island for over eighteen years. First as a graduate student while pursuing a Master’s degree focusing on Gerontology. I have worked in research and health promotion for older adults and am currently a project manager for the Rhode Island Geriatric Education Center, coordinating continuing education for health professionals who work with individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.

I began running about seven years ago and it has become such an important part of my life. I have run several 5ks, 10ks, half marathons and three marathons. I want to be a positive role model for my 12 year old daughter by being active and working hard towards the goals that I have set for myself. My daughter ran her first 5k with me in 2012 and I couldn’t have been more proud! 

It has been such an incredible honor and extraordinary experience to run the Boston Marathon in memory of Lingzi Lu and for her family and the Foundation.  I will forever cherish the memories of the acts of kindness and compassion before, during, and after the marathon as well as the overwhelming support of Lingzi’s family, my family and friends, and the marathon spectators.  Lingzi continues to bring people together and hearing the crowd calling out her name in support as I proudly wore a shirt displaying her name was very emotional. My thoughts and support are with Lingzi’s family, and I am so honored to run as part of Team Lingzi. I hope to raise as much funds as possible to support causes dear to Lingzi’s heart.
